Bing Search August 2009 Update

Less then two weeks after a July Bing update, Bing is reportedly updating again.

A WebmasterWorld thread has several webmasters noticing major shifts in the search results at Microsoft's Bing. Here is some of the feedback from the thread:

Definitely seeing a shift across the board. Biggest change I can pinpoint is a continued decrease in relevancy of KIDs (keywords in domain). More than 80% of the top 500 KWs I track showed movement (mostly positive for me and mostly displacing a lot of KIDs results).

Yes, looks like an update - and Bing traffic converts well with certain demographics. Now I've gotta scramble to do some long over-due site updates because some pages popped up out of nowhere.

So if you notice an increase or decline in your referrers from Bing today, you know why.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.

Oh, I have to add here that Bing announced the "Bing Jingle" winner, personally, I don't like it:
